Several European countries are beginning to turn the page over two years of health restrictions put in place to curb the Covid-19 pandemic. Germany is no exception and plans to phase out, from March 20, most of the measures in place, according to a government plan unveiled on Monday, February 14.

“By early spring, March 20, restrictions on social, cultural and economic life must be gradually lifted”This is the eight-page document that will serve as the basis for discussions during Wednesday’s meeting between the German government and regions. On this date, the state can therefore rescind or limit vaccination obligations that require access to key places of social or cultural life.

The rules that encourage companies to prefer telecommuting for their employees should also disappear. The document specifies, however, that employers will, with conditions, be able to continue the offer of work from home in agreement with employees. Wearing surgical or FFP2 masks should also remain mandatory, especially in transportation or enclosed spaces.

Initially, without giving a specific date, the metrics regarding the number of people authorized during private gatherings, for the time being, which are limited to ten people who have been vaccinated or cured, can increase to twenty. Then, from March 4, restrictions on restaurants and hotels should disappear and clubs and discos should be able to reopen for those who have been vaccinated, cured or tested.
